    Delicious! Very easy to make & in the oven before we knew it. 20 minutes later we were enjoying these moist, sweet scones. After seeing Mary's photo in the PAC thead I knew I had to try them right away. I didn't have buttermilk so I combined 3/4 tsp lemon juice & 3/4 cup milk. I used a dried berry mix (cranberry, strawberry & cherry) & added about a 1/2 tsp pure almond extract. These were divine & a huge hit for my family as a quick brunch treat. Thanks for sharing, Muddyboots!

    I have never made scones in a springform pan. This was quick and easy to do and the scones were were tender. I loved the combination of the white chocolate chips and the cranberries. Made for PAC Fall 2008.

    These were scrumptious for breakfast this morning! Everyone raved! I chopped up white chocolate bar as I didn't have the chips but kept everything else the same. Thank you for sharing!

    I didn't have cranberries so I used dried apricots cut into quarters and plumped. The sugar became Splenda and for the butter I used 2 tbsp of "healthy fat" margarine and made up the rest of the 1/2 cup with unsweetened applesauce. The dough is soft and fluffy. I chose to cut the dough into 16 squares because the wedges will be huge. The scones are delicious and perfect with Oolong tea. Thank you for sharing this great recipe.


Always loved to cook. I love to try new complicated recipes. I have for many years given friends and relatives gifts of my baked goodies.
